Brooke and Carlos met in their Persuasion and Propaganda class at Calvin College. A budding friendship (and a little persuasion) convinced Carlos and Brooke that they belonged together. They “studied” together frequently.
Carlos proposed on Independence Day after a day of fun in the sun. The couple spent the afternoon on the shores of Lake Michigan, enjoyed dinner at PF Chang, and then waited for the fireworks to begin. Carlos surprised Brooke with flowers just before he proposed to the love of his life, making it the most memorable 4th of July of their lives.
The Day & Design
The wedding took place outdoors on a beautiful fall day. The couple had a few unique details, including the decision to say their wedding vows in both English and Spanish. It helped make the ceremony extra special for all of their guests.
